Omar (Ahmed), a radicalised British Muslim, has formed a terrorist cell with his dim-witted brother Waj (Novak), angry white convert Barry (Lindsay) and apprehensive bomb-maker Fessal (Akhtar). While Omar and Waj are in Pakistan at a Mujahideen training camp, Barry recruits would-be rapper Hassan (Ali) to the group. Returning to Britain, Omar reveals his plans for a suicide bomb attack against an unexpected Western target.
Guaranteed to offend a lot of folks across the political and belief spectrum, but consistently funny and horribly to the point. A sit-com spin-off is probably not on the cards, though.
